Ranked #15 of 16 Hotels in Tofino
Reviewed July 31, 2007

Average price $75 my foot. We went to Tofino and everything was booked. This was the only place we could find so the price was jacked up, so much for a nice community. Tofino was lovely, but certainly not at first. We paid $150 for 2 single beds in a room which had hideous wallpaper which didn't match the ugly carpet. Every hostel we stayed at on the island was cheaper and much nicer than this place. Some of the rooms, not our fortunatley, are above a bar which plays loud music at night. Book in advance when you go to Tofino and don't book here.

With a very competitive price, the quality given is above average. Their style is consider old, but the condition is very clean. There is no kitchen, but a huge lobby with coffee, microwave and free internet service is provided.
This location is very convinient to all the activities you can enjoy. Also, the staffs are very kind and honest. They will not lie the quality of the hotel, such as they will tell us ahead that they only have 2 rooms left, one is with no view, but the environment will be very quiet. Otherwise, the other room is 2 floors above the pub, which can be very noisy, but it has the view to enjoy. We end up picking the room with no view, but we have a good night sleep.
If you plan to relax, then this will not be my first choice because the condition is only average. But if you are only looking for a place to sleep and shower, this is a very good place to stay.

For $150 a night you'd at least expect glass drinking glasses. Instead, we had two plastic glasses that came conveniently wrapped. If we looked over the building across the street and through the power lines, we kinda had a harbour view - the other side of the 'lodge' overlooks an alley. There was a wallpapered pipe running down the middle of our room, the bathroom lino was stained, and instead of patching the holes in the wall, they placed pictures over the holes. This place was a dump.
